Vidya Balan is one dignified woman and the last person anybody would want to mess with. The actress who is busy promoting her film ‘Begum Jaan’, reached Kolkata for the next leg of her promotion recently and at the airport a man asked for a selfie with her. She did agree to the selfie with her fan but he went a step ahead and put his arm around her. to this Vidya curtly said, “Don’t!” While the man removed his arm immediately, he put his arm back around Vidya and that what irked Vidya the most!
Vidya couldn’t tolerate his misbehavior and she yelled at him saying,
“What do you think you’re doing?”
When the man still insisted on getting a selfie with her, he angered Vidya and she said,
“No, you can’t! Behave yourself.”
Speaking to an entertainment portal about this incident, Vidya said,
“When a stranger puts an arm around you, be it a man or a woman you get uncomfortable because they are intruding into your personal space. We are public figures, not public property.”
Well done, Vidya! You showed the man his place.
